In this contest I would like you to submit a poem that has raw emotion. By that I mean very original(personal) and truthfully something that comes from your life experience. Here are some things I like to see in poetry: symbolism, imagery, and lots of emotional content. Stay away from: factual information.
Here are some inspirational quotes to feed your hungry minds:

"Everyone's chest is a living room wall with awkwardly placed photographs hiding fist-sized holes." -Andrea Gibson

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens." - Carl Jung

I will take my time to read slowly and attentively to every poem. Depending on how many contestants I get I will try my best to post a review on as the most that I have time for. Thank you for your interest and I will be happy to see what you have in to express.


My respect, and admiration for your brilliant mind. :)
